Don’t Promise Me

Don’t Promise Me
It isn’t in your hands
Fulfill T-O-D-A-Y
It is a promise on its own
It is a perfect gift with which
You can show me
You mean what you feel
You mean what you plan
You mean what you have with me
Just be who you promise to be
Want to love me forever?
Show me that forever love N-O-W
Want to assure me
You’ll stand by me forever?
Stand by me today as though
There’s no T-O-M-O-R-R-OW
The hands of time keeps moving
Each moment flies faster than
A mosquito running to save its life
You have this M-O-M-E-N-T
To give what you can give
To be who you really are to me
To show me my place
This very M-O-M-E-N-T
Is the perfect time for you
To lower your shoulder for me
To share that water with me
To defend me from the attackers
To be proud of who I am
To appreciate what I’ve done
Whatever P-R-O-M-I-S-E
You want to give to me
Of what you’ve got for me
In hours, days, or weeks to come
Fulfill it now, I mean now
Let me live in its reflection now
No Future Promises
